- To write music down and perform from a graphic score
‘Pupils should be taught to:
- play tuned and untuned instruments musically
- use their voices expressively and creatively by singing songs and speaking chants and
- experiment with, create, select and combine sounds using the inter-related dimensions
Pupils needing extra support
Provide them with the Activity: Sequencing symbols to represent the sounds explored last lesson, e.g. waves, sunshine, seagulls, rain, wind, which they can then use to represent their sequence of sounds.
Provide these children with the most versatile instruments so that they can use them to make more than one sound.
Pupils working at greater depth
Should be asked to perform both a vocal sound and an instrumental sound at the same time, and record this on their score.
Challenge them to add tempo to their score, such as an ‘F’ for fast and ‘S’ for slow under each of their symbols.
